Note: As of April 5, 2017, all 27 rooms at the Rutgers University Inn and Conference Center, described below, have been booked for the night of April 21, so you will need to consider one of the other hotels listed below.
A block of rooms (only 27) have been reserved at the Rutgers University Inn and Conference Center. The rate is $82 for a single or double room. To make a reservation, you need to use the online reservation system at the above URL. The system requires you to find the Reservations button, select the check in and check out dates, and the number of guests. Enter the Promo/Group Code 19171. Click the Book button, verify the information, and click the Book Now button.
Note: The rooms are only reserved for the night of April 21. If you need to arrive earlier or leave later, and have to go outside that date, you will have to log back into the system and make additional reservations at prevailing rates. In this case, you should NOT re-enter the Promo/Group Code, since you will be making individual reservations, not group reservations. You also need to make a note alerting the staff that you are part of the Finite Element Circus Group, so you can have a continuous stay in one room.
There are also other hotels nearby and within walking distance of the New Brunswick train station (that are more expensive). There is a Rutgers rate, which you could ask for, but it may not be less expensive.
